Brazile says she found ‘no evidence’ that Democratic primaries were rigged for Hilary Clinton
Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said Sunday that there’s “no evidence” that the 2016 Democratic primaries were rigged for Hilary Clinton.
The comments came as Brazile details the fundraising agreement in her new book, writing that it was “a cancer” that disadvantaged Sen. Bernie Sanders, because it gave Clinton’s campaign influence over some DNC operations in exchange for helping the party raise money.
During Sunday’s episode of ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Brazile simply said: “I found no evidence, none whatsoever.”
Tomorrow is ‘Election Day’. Get ready!
Donald Trump isn’t on the ballot Tuesday, but the whirlwind from his presidency could weigh heavily on Pennsylvania voters as they go to the polls.
Here in Pennsylvania, the top statewide races are to elect judges to the Supreme Court, Superior Court, and Commonwealth Court.
In Philadelphia specifically, voters will choose a new district attorney and city controller.
There has been much attention in the city to replace now convicted former DA Seth Williams. Candidates Larry Krasner, a progressive democrat defense attorney, faces Republican Beth Grossman, a former assistant district attorney.
Krasner rode the outsider wave in the May Democratic primary. He benefited from a $1.66 million investment by the liberal New York billionaire George Soros, and from grassroots support by Black Lives Matter activists and other progressive groups looking for change in the criminal justice system.
Grossman, a prosecutor for 21 years, has garnered support from former D.A. Lynne Abraham, a Democrat, the Fraternal Order of Police, and others.

According to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, at least 26 people were killed in Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
At least 20 victims were wounded with ages ranging from 5 to 72 years old, according to Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Authorities have not said what may have motivated the suspected shooter, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, who was later found dead in his vehicle.
The shooting has devastated the small Texas town east of San Antonio, described as a place where “everybody knows everybody.”
